From the Publisher:
Set in the tense and uncertain years before the Second World War, when America was still largely conflicted about entering the war on either side, Andrew Rosenheim's thriller Fear Itself offers a rich depiction of history as it was?and as it might have been. Jimmy Nessheim, a young Special Agent in the fledgling FBI, is assigned to infiltrate a new German?American organization known as the Bund. Ardently pro-Nazi, the Bund is conspiring to sabotage American efforts against Adolf Hitler. But as Nessheim's investigation takes him into the very heart of the Bund, it becomes increasingly clear that something far more sinister is at work, something that seems to lead directly to the White House. Drawn into the center of Washington's high society, Nessheim finds himself caught up in a web of political intrigue and secret lives. But as he moves closer to the truth, an even more lethal plot emerges, one that could rewrite history.A thriller set in the ambivalent Depression-era years before World War II finds a fledgling FBI Special Agent dispatched to infiltrate the pro-Nazi German-American Bund organization and discovering a sinister plot targeting the White House. 25,000 first printing.
|With sharp wit and a keen eye for period details, Rosenheim fully immerses the reader in Depression-era America. He seamlessly weaves into the narrative larger-than-life figures such as J. Edgar Hoover, Clyde Tolson, and Lucy Mercer Rutherford, as well as historical events like the 1939 pro-Nazi rally held at New York City's Madison Square Garden. The first in a series chronicling Agent Nessheim's adventures throughout the war, Fear Itself establishes Andrew Rosenheim as a spectacular new talent.
